The Kia Picanto
Fixed Low Monthly Payments

The Kia Picanto is proving to be one of the most reliable cars in its class

Kia’s smallest model, the Kia Picanto, features a range of substantial mid-life upgrades, keeping it one step ahead of its competitors. The upgraded model boasts a vibrant design and fun-driving attitude, combined with ‘class-above’ connectivity and safety technologies, and lower emissions from newly reengineered powertrains. Picanto brings with it a suite of advanced safety technology from Kia’s larger cars, making it among the safest cars in its class. It also offers Kia’s new ‘Phase II’ UVO Connect telematics technologies, enhancing vehicle connectivity and control to take the stress out of journeys. Enhancements to the Picanto’s gasoline powertrain line-up include Kia’s optional new Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) for a smoother drive.

Inside, the Picanto features a series of visual and technological upgrades, centred around a larger 8.0-inch ‘floating’ widescreen audio visual navigation (AVN) system (see ‘Infotainment’ for more details), and a high-resolution 4.2-inch digital display in the driver’s instrument cluster. Depending on trim level and market, the Picanto’s cabin is offered with black cloth or synthetic leather seats, with the upgraded model finished with a range of new upholstery textures for a more contemporary, higher quality look and feel. The cabin is finished with black, silver or gloss black highlights in the door, on the dashboard and around the gear selector.

The Picanto combines high ride stability with quick, enjoyable handling responses, aided by independent MacPherson strut suspension at the front and a torsion beam rear axle. In addition, its relatively long wheelbase contributes to a natural improvement in ride quality and stability on all roads. A quick steering rack enables immediate responses to driver inputs, while meaning fewer turns of the wheel from lock-to-lock than many rivals (2.8 turns), making the Picanto easy to drive at low speeds and in the city. The front wheels are pushed close to the front of the vehicle, resulting in low weight ahead of the front axle and more agile handling.

The updated Picanto is the first model equipped with Kia’s new Automated Manual Transmission (AMT). The AMT is based around a five-speed manual transmission with clutch and gear shift actuators to automate clutch operation and gear shifts. Using a single dry clutch, the AMT is a cost-effective option for customers who favour the convenience and ease-of-use of an automatic transmission, without sacrificing the fuel efficiency of a conventional manual transmission.
